There is a large info box popping up in the bottom of the screen when I close tabs. I usually press 'x' and close tabs starting with the last one but this info box that says 'tab closed' and has an undo button on it, is covering a big portion of the last tab including it's 'x' button. It is even larger in landscape mode. This is very annoying and if I want to close another tab I'd have to wait for it to disappear or try to press around it. It's a useful feature but could the experience be made more better?

Hi, I've been using Firefox on my Huawei P30 for about 2 years now. A few month ago, I installed an update for Firefox. Since then, I've been quite annoyed, because: when I quit the app (I don't close it completely) and re-open Firefox a few minutes later, I don't get back to my last tab but to a starting page with 'frequently visited websites'. I have to go to the tab-overview and reopen the tab I visited last. I don't want that, I want to get back to my last opened tab by default. That was possible before the update and I liked it much better.

I couldn't find anything in the settings of Firefox or by using Google to fix the problem. Pls help, I don't want to switch to Chrome.

Add URL to home screen instead of using PWA "Install"?

Hello. I would like to force the creation of an Android home screen item which opens Firefox to a specific URL though the desired site is using Progressive Web Apps. Since the site uses PWA, Firefox for Android replaces the menu item "Add to Home Screen" with "Install". Using "Install" creates a home screen item which links to the website's home page, not to the specific URL. I would like to bypass the PWA and create a simple link to the URL. I am using Android 11 running Firefox 89.1.1. The URL I would like is deep within Weather Underground.

In early 2020 on a different phone, I used Firefox "Add to Home Screen" to create a home screen item which opened Firefox to the desired URL at Weather Underground. This was on Android 10 with some older version of Firefox. That URL still works on Android 10 running Firefox 89.1.1.

I am calling it a "home screen item", but is it actually a Widget? The Android 10 and 11 Widget menus (with Firefox 89.1.1) do not let me create a new URL. How was this done in the past? I still have the item on my Android 10 phone, so can I move it to Android 11?

After I updated Firefox on Android to version 89, at random times it crashes when I open it and nothing works excepts reinstalling it (Android says it's crashing continuously and the only thing I see after is the crash reporter). Problem is that everytime it happens I lost my collections and settings (those seems not to be synced like bookmarks).

I suspect its related to sync, I currently have 3 devices in sync, a linux desktop, an android 5 phone and an android 9 phone (I consider it the main firefox for me). It started after updating both the phones and the desktop to 89.

Firefox: 89 Android: 9 Device: Asus Zenfone Max Pro M2
